Ticket Sales for Spring Concerts - Friday 15th & Saturday 16th May 2020

Tickets for our May concerts this year are now on sale through Camberley Theatre box office. The ticket price is £9.50. All sections of the Orchestra will perform on both nights.


We believe the Orchestra provides excellent entertainment value and, ideally, we would ask all Orchestra members and their parents to ensure that they actively encourage family and friends to purchase tickets for this coming May’s concerts. If each Orchestra member were to sell a minimum of 5 tickets, then we can be confident of a good size audience for both nights of the concert.


Please don’t leave it to the last minute. Start thinking about and planning for your active participation in the sale of tickets for our May concerts.


Box Office Information

The theatre accepts all debit/credit cards except American Express. Cheques should be made payable to Surrey Heath Borough Council. The theatre charges a £2 transaction fee on all bookings. This fee enables them to give the best possible service, keeps their ticket prices as affordable as possible and reflects card and cash fees that they are charged. They also charge a £1 postage fee but do not post tickets within 7 days of the concerts. Please note postage is only available to UK addresses. Tickets are free to collect from the Box Office. Theatre Club members do not pay the transaction or postage fee.

Save time, book online and choose your own seat at www.camberleytheatre.co.uk. You will need to create a secure online account to purchase tickets. All tickets are available through the website.

Opening Times

The Box Office is open for counter or phone bookings, Monday to Friday 10am-5pm and Saturdays 10am-4pm. When there is a show, they are open until 15 minutes after the show starts. They are closed Sunday and Bank Holidays unless there’s a show when the Box Office opens 2 hours before the show starts.



Senior Section Bowling

Letters seeking expressions of interest regarding participation in Tenpin Bowling at The Atrium in Camberley on Sunday 15 March 2020 have already been circulated to members of the Senior Section. We would ask that the acceptance part of the letter is completed and returned by 7 March at the latest, if not already returned Those participants under 16 as at 15 March will require a consent form from a parent and these will be available for collection on 7 March.



Surrey Arts Promotional Film

Surrey Arts are producing a film to promote all their services including lessons, ensembles and arts. On Saturday 21 March, a film crew will visit the CYWO ensembles and film some of the rehearsals and take photo's. They will also speak with some parents and our Orchestra members.


The Ensemble membership forms cover filming and photography and its use, but if you do not want your child involved please let us know (brian.hopper@cywo.org.uk)



Overseas Concert Tour 2020

Thank you to all tour participants that have provided passport details so that we can complete the passenger list for our tour company ahead of our concert tour to Valencia at the end of July.


Those undertaking the tour will also be required to hold a current EHIC (European Health Insurance Card) for the trip. Whilst there is uncertainty as to the use of EHIC cards after 31 January 2021, they can still be used in the months leading up to that date and will be a requirement for the tour in addition to the travel insurance provided by our tour company as part of our tour package. Details regarding the travel insurance have already been provided to tour participants.


If you do not currently have an EHIC card, or this will expire before 3 August 2020, please order a new card (www.gov.uk/european-health-insurance-card). Thank you.
